Boomkat Product Review:
Juan Atkins’ 1993 compendium of Model 500 originals and modifications was a more readily available introduction for his music to European markets, and those who struggled to cop the imported 12”s
As these things go, and probably due some licensing fuckries with original compilers R&S, or lost masters, it features alternative versions of some “classics” alongside originals (probably mastered from vinyl) spanning the project’s first five years, before it went sleeker, aerodynamic in the early ‘90s. The remix of ‘No UFO’s’ is exclusive to the set and kicks off a roll call that takes in the glyding smooth mix of ‘The Chase’, hi-tech 313 funk template of ‘Off To Battle (Remix)’ (1988); his untouchable electro joint ‘Night Drive (Time, Space, Transmat)’; the Kraftwerkian wriggle of ‘Electric Entourage’ and ‘Sound of Stereo’ from 1987; and the comp exclusive acidic M500 version of ‘Techno Music’, whose original found on the 1988 introduction to the UK/EU market, 10 Records’ ‘Techno! (The New Sound of Detroit)’ compilation.
